The path to happiness can be found through Buddhist Meditation.  The General Program (GP) class provides a straightforward presentation of Buddhist view, meditation and instruction on how to establish or improve a daily practice. This class is suitable for beginners or for those with more experience. In these classes we will learn why we need meditation and discover practical methods to attain peaceful states of mind.
